here is a book that I have recommended many many times . X11 I think you might find it interesting. The whole concept of "breed" for dogs, cattle, horses, cats , is a relatively new concept of just over 100 years .

Prior to that , meaning a public registry , there were personal , private registries, kept every bit as well and as accurately to properly document the pairings and statistics on the progeny if only by footnotes. The dogs were bred for purpose (function) and as a replacement -- not for commercial gain.

Anyway , the book X11 and mycobraracr is Bred for Perfection Bred for Perfection: Shorthorn Cattle, Collies, and Arabian Horses since 1800: Amazon.ca: Margaret E. Derry: Books
